A suspicious package that led to the temporary evacuation of a portion of Destiny USA mall in Syracuse has been declared safe by authorities. The Syracuse Police Hazardous Device Unit inspected the package and found it to pose no threat.
The package was discovered on the 1st level expansion near the Nordstrom Rack store. While the surrounding area was promptly evacuated for safety precautions, the older section of the mall remained open to the public.
With the package now deemed harmless, the previously evacuated part of the mall has been reopened. The police investigation continues.
